500mL bottle poured into tulip

Pours a deep opaque blackness with a fluffy tanned head resting on top. Slick, oily retention across the beer with spotty rings of lacing no the glass.

Very rich and robust in the nose with cocoa, caramel and molasses. Roasted coffee beans and dark malt with a hint of bitterness. Soft alcohol warmth.

Soft notion of bitter hops up front followed by an avalanche of deep, roasted dark malt flavor. Dark chocolate and cocoa with caramel. Some hints of molasses and syrup with a slightly bitter blast of coffee. Burly backbone, full-flavored and overall pretty sweet. Finishes warm and sticky.

Full bodied, decent carbonation, sticky and chewy on the tongue, pretty soft and smooth. A rich beer overall, nice coffee and chocolate flavor.

A- Black, flat, dark copper head, quickly dissipates leaving no trace

S- Coffee. Not very complex. I can smell a bit of the maltiness and some booze, but predominantly coffee

T- Coffee. Different than most coffee forward stouts. This is not a sweet coffee, and it is not coffee+dark chocolate, it is just coffee with roasted malts up front. The coffee flavor did not work for me on this one. It left a bit of a metallic taste in the mouth, and there was no real complexity to it.

M- Dark, chewy, viscous, little carbonation, alcohol feel- exactly what you would expect and want from the style

O- I always take value into account when rating overall- and this beer is just not a good buy for the price. It is OK, definitely not a bad beer, but not one that I will be revisiting. I like Mikkeller a lot, but this is not one of their best offerings

Poured from pint bottle into my Deschutes tulip glass...

A - This one pours pretty much black, with a 1 finger dark chocolate head that quickly disipates.

S - Smells of rich chocolate and coffee. Very coffee forward, with hints of oatmeal in the background.

T/M - Wow, I thought the coffee was forward in the smell! It's more prevolent in the taste. Stick to your tongue coffee, with hints of tabacco and oatmeal. Great sticky mouthfeel, with low but good carbonation.

O - One of the best coffee stouts I've ever had. No alcohol heat at all, pretty viscous, and great aftertaste. Chalk this one up as another winner from Mikkeller!

From a 22 ounce bottle with no freshness date. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Pitch black thick body with a thin brown thick creamy head which dissipates quickly, but a thick ring remains with some coating on the top.

S: Great smell of roasted coffee and slight dark chocolate hints and a real earthy overall smell to it. This would be perfect if it were just a tad stronger.

T: This tastes really good. slight dark chocolate hints throughout with a bitter dark chocolate syrup finish. The coffee flavor comes up with a very distinct roasty bitterness that I've never tasted before, this definitely isn't your average store bought coffee. There's this earthy taste throughout that matches the smell, definitely from the coffee used and it's very distinct, but pleasing. This is definitely very mellow though throughout.

M: Not as thick as I was expecting but definitely full-bodied, light carbonation.

O: This is a very drinkable beer with a distinct flavor and scent. I like this a lot and recommend it to any stout drinker. I'm giving this high marks for a reason.
